Constraints and Language Processing

5th International Workshop on Constraints and Language Processing (CSLP2008)
August 11-15, 2008

organized as part of the European Summer School
on Logic, Language and Information ESSLLI 2008
(http://www.illc.uva.nl/ESSLLI2008/), 4-15 August, 2008 in Hamburg, Germany

Workshop Organizers:

Philippe Blache (Provence University, France)
Henning Christiansen (Roskilde University, Denmark), co-chair henning_at_ruc.dk
Veronica Dahl (Simon Fraser University, Canada)
Jørgen Villadsen (Technical University of Denmark), co-chair jv_at_imm.dtu.dk

Workshop Purpose:

The CSLP 2008 workshop addresses the question of
constraints and language processing from an
interdisciplinary perspective. Constraints are
widely used in linguistics, computer science, and
psychology. How they are used, however, varies
widely according to the research domain: natural
language processing, knowledge representation,
cognitive modelling, problem solving
mechanisms, etc. The purpose is to pursue a
paradigm, unifying the different approaches into
a common framework capable of explaining how
constraints play a role in representing,
processing and acquiring linguistic information,
and this from a formal, technical, and cognitive perspective.

Workshop Topics:

The topics include, but are not limited to,
constraint-based linguistic theories, constraints
in human language comprehension and production,
context modelling and discourse interpretation,
acquisition of constraints, probabilistic
constraint-based reasoning, constraint satisfaction
technologies and constraint logic programming.

Submission details:

Authors are invited to submit a full paper of up to 12 pages in PDF format.
The font size must be at least 10 pt when printed on A4 paper.
It is recommended that the LaTeX "article" style is used.
Previously published papers cannot be accepted.
The submissions will be reviewed by the program committee.
The accepted papers will appear in the workshop
proceedings published by ESSLLI.
One author for each accepted paper must attend
the workshop in order to present the paper.
A volume at an international publisher will be
considered for selected and revised papers, if
number and quality of submissions permits.
Please use the CSLP 2008 submission page handled
by the EasyChair conference system:

Workshop format:

The workshop is part of ESSLLI and is open to all ESSLLI participants.
It will consist of five 90-minute sessions held
over five consecutive days in the second week of ESSLLI.

12th International Conference on Electronic Publishing
25 to 27 June 2008, Toronto, Canada

Second Call for Papers ELPUB2008
Submission deadline: January 20, 2008


Open Scholarship: Authority, Community and Sustainability in the Age of Web 2.0

Scholarly communications, in particular scholarly publications, are
undergoing tremendous changes. Researchers, universities, funding
bodies, research libraries and publishers are responding in different
ways, from active experimentation, adaptation, to strong resistance.
The ELPUB2008 conference will focus on key issues on the future of
scholarly communications resulting from the intersection of semantic
web technologies, the development of cyberinfrastructure for
humanities and the sciences, and new dissemination channels and
business models. We welcome a wide variety of papers from members of
these communities whose research and experiments are transforming the
nature of scholarly communications. Topics include but are not restricted to:

* New Publishing models, tools, services and roles
* New scholarly constructs and discourse methods
* Innovative business models for scholarly publishing
* Multilingual and multimodal interfaces
* Services and technology for specific user communities, media, and content
* Content search, analysis and retrieval
* Interoperability, scalability and middleware infrastructure to
facilitate awareness and discovery
* Personalisation technologies (e.g. social tagging, folksonomies,
RSS, microformats)
* Metadata creation, usage and interoperability
* Semantic web issues
* Data mining, text harvesting, and dynamic formatting
* User generated content and its relation to publisher's content
* Usage and citation impact
* Security, privacy and copyright issues
* Digital preservation, content authentication
* Recommendations, guidelines, interoperability standards

Author Guidelines
Contributions are invited for the following categories:
      - Single papers (abstract minimum of 1,000 and maximum of 1500 words)
      - Tutorial (abstract minimum of 500 and maximum of 1500 words)
      - Workshop (abstract max of 1000 words)
      - Poster (abstract max of 500 words)

The ELPUB 2008 conference will keep the tradition of the previous
international conferences on electronic publishing, held in the
United Kingdom (in 1997 and 2001), Hungary (1998), Sweden (1999),
Russia (2000), the Czech Republic (2002), Portugal (2003), Brazil
(2004), Belgium (2005), Bulgaria (2006) and Austria (2007), which is
to bring together researchers, lecturers, librarians, developers,
business executives, entrepreneurs, managers, users and all those
interested in issues regarding electronic publishing in a wide
variety of contexts. These include the human, cultural, economic,
social, technological, legal, commercial, and other relevant aspects
that such an exciting theme encompasses.

Three distinguishing features of this conference are: broad scope of
topics which creates a unique atmosphere of active exchange and
learning about various aspects of scholarly communications and
electronic publishing; combination of general and technical issues;
and a condensed procedure of submission, revision and publication of
proceedings which guarantees presentations of most recent work.

ELPUB 2008 offers a variety of activities, such as workshops,
tutorials, panel debates, poster presentation and demonstrations. A
variety of social events and sight-seeing tours will be available to
participants (at additional costs). Please see the conference web
site for details.

Conference Location: Toronto, Canada. Toronto is one of the most
vibrant cities in North-America. It has a large multicultural
population, is the largest city in Canada and the 5th-largest city in
North America. There are many world class galleries and museums
across the city and you will find authentic cuisines from around the
world at reasonable prices.

Conference Host: Knowledge Media Design Institute (KMDI), University
of Toronto. KMDI is a graduate research and teaching institute at
the University of Toronto, and an intellectual incubator fostering
cross-disciplinary initiatives across the university. The work of the
institute spans both the scientific study of the ways in which media
shapes and is shaped by human activity, and the practical work of
founding an interdisciplinary nexus for design and evaluation of both
media and media technologies. KMDI has acknowledged leadership,
substantial research programs and broad participation in three major
areas: collaboration and collaboration technologies, the phenomenon
of openness and new forms of knowledge production and dissemination,
and public policy and citizen engagement.
